Family and friends of Marshall,
I am saddened by the loss of such a genuinely good man. I had the opportunity to become friends with “Scottie” as he volunteered for OMC during the same years that I worked there. He was a wonderful cook and always had something new to try when I would round the corner of a morning and I felt so privileged to be treated. I remember a trip that he took to Mexico? he brought back a couple of souvenirs for me a hand carved elephant from stone and a full length poncho that I loved dearly and I used everyday in my office to keep my legs warm. I unfortunately, lost contact with Scottie, when I left OMC, but, I have never forgotten one moment the kindness that Scottie always showed me. He is missed but in a much more special place.
